Even though we are still two weeks away from the All-Star break, Major League Baseball teams have played roughly half of their schedule. With approximately 81 games done, it is time to look back at what we have seen and hand out mid-season awards.
It's a good thing that we still have half of the season to go, because right now there are a lot of races that are so ridiculously close you can make a case for a handful of players and not necessarily be wrong.
The parameters of the awards are simply that we are giving them to players based on what has happened from opening day through June 26. This is not meant to be a prediction of who will win the award at the end of the year.
Things are going to change between now and the end of September, and we will update award winners when we get there. This is just a look back at the season to date.
With that in mind, here are the mid-season award winners in MLB as we see it.
